Admission Process

The admission process at our Faculty consists of two main steps:

  • Completing the admission requirements specific to your chosen programme(s)

    This entails the submission of a CV and/or a motivation letter, and providing a relevant academic paper. For admission requirements, please visit the programme-specific pages.

  • Providing proof of previous study

    All programmes require that you submit a certificate of previous study. This means that you have to provide your Bachelor's degree certificate if you want to apply to one of our Master's programmes.

Applicants with a disability, such as a specific learning difficulty, can request that the admission process be specially adapted to meet their needs. In this case a medical report must be included in the application form.

Application Form and Deadline

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with a final deadline on April 30, 2020, or July 31, 2020, depending on the study programme. Application form is available via our Admissions portal (programmes taught in English) and here (programme Deutsche und französische Philosophie).

Admission Information

Deadline for applicants to submit a notarized copy of their Bachelor's or Master's graduation certificate is September 30, 2020. Please, be aware that the process of recognition/nostrification takes some time - up to 1 month for recognition and up to 3 months for nostrification. When planning your enrolment and studies, keep in mind that you should submit all the relevant documents sufficiently in advance.

Applicants who are unable to get their foreign diploma recognized/nostrified untill the end of September are allowed to submit a copy of their BA diploma no later than October 22, 2020. This is the extended and final deadline for enrolment in the academic year 2020/2021. Please, keep in mind that the academic year already starts on October 1, 2020.

Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees

Below you can find information concerning the official recognition/nostrification process which is a mandatory part of the Faculty's admission process. Without having finished the nostrification/recognition process, you cannot be enrolled in your studies if you have a foreign education certificate. You can start the process once you receive confirmation that you have been accepted to your chosen programme. During this process, please, take into consideration the aproximate length of each individual procedure.

To begin, you will need your BA diploma (together with the attachements you received with it, e.g. diploma transcript). You will not be using the original documents but verified copies of the original. Those copies should be certified either through an apostille (in case you are from one of the states that signed the Apostille convention) or super-legalization. Please, bear in mind that only copies in English or Czech language will be accepted for this process.

You can find out more about recognition and nostrification on their dedicated webpage, "Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees".
